I am writing this review as I am extremely happy with the services Coach Lynn provided. After several sessions with her and professionally written resume I got two interviews out of only 3 jobs I have applied for and have already scheduled my final interview at the University of my choice! Coach Lynn didn't only give me a professional advice, but she motivated me to do my best when I felt discouraged! She is truly an amazing life coach! I can always text her for an advice or just an encouragement and she's always there for you! She is super friendly and sweet and has a calm positive aura that brings enormous positivity! What a finding! I knew it right away it would have been a successful companionship! She is outstanding!!!

Adam did a great job copy editing my children's book. He was especially good at correcting grammar and helping me with overall flow of the book. Definitely would use again!

Michelle was awesome!!! Her mind is brilliant and she created the most magnificent pictures for my family! We have never had such beautiful pictures taken! We found our life long photographer and will never go to anyone else! You will fall in love with her work and her caring, sweet personality! She was patient and so creative! Check out her work and book with her! She is so different from any other photographer I have seen! Her prices are also extremely affordable!

After I finished writing my book I went online in search of a book editing service. Fortunately this search led me not only to Thumbtack, where I received a number of excellent options, but to Kathleen Tracy. After reading her profile she was the person I most wanted to work with based on her experience and I was very lucky to do so. The difference in the initial draft I had sent her to the finished project she returned was unbelievable and a testament to her talents. She is certainly a professional writer and will enhance any project she takes on. It was a great surprise that someone with her talent and experience was available to assist me. My recommendation could not be any higher. Thank you Kathy!

Dr. Weatherup provided amazing revision & edit of my grad school essays. I honestly think without her help I would not have gotten my full scholarship. She works efficiently and well with deadlines. She has a way of helping you distill thoughts and makes sure your words are succinct. She is a master editor with over 25 years experience!

Cheryl was fantastic to work with! She had a great way of going through my story and enhancing it with little tweaks and grammatical fixes without changing the storyline. She got it done quickly and efficiently and was very good about communicating with me on how everything was coming along. I really appreciated all the time and effort that she put into making my manuscript even better. I would definitely work with her again!

What they'll charge you You’ll pay for the help you get from any editor, web designer, or writer. Script editing on-demand Script editors charge anything from $0.04 and up per word for a basic line edit. Imagine that $1,000 just to have someone read and spell check your script. You get it back polished, but is it any good??? I charge half that. $0.02 for for a basic line edit, $0.03 for a line edit, treatment, and notes. Not only can I save you some cash but when I'm done reading you will have some fresh notes and ideas. You will be able to improve your story, and have a treatment to submit the next time you take it someplace. Web Design Can cost anything from 1,500 to 2,000 for a professional looking pages. Big companies can afford to throw this kind of bread around all the time. Individuals, on the other hand, are unable to see such a cost as affordable. Let’s face it, there not. I charge $12 bucks per hour. How much you pay depends on how detailed you want your web sight or your web page to be. Film and Video editing on-demand film and video editors usually charge by the hour ($25.00-$60.00) or day ($125.00-$160.00) They also charge all kinds of fee's for use of equipment, traveling expenses, and most will charge you just to look at your film. I charge $12 bucks per hour. $90 a day. $25 bucks per hour if I have to come to you. I charge nothing to look at your movie, I like watching movies. Let Me Be Your Editor, Story Coach, or Web Designer. Send me an email query or you can phone me, too. I’ve edited more than 5 short films and one feature length documentary as well as written one screenplay, so far. I can give you the benefit of years worth of film knowledge, post production experience, and good ideas. I can help you, cut your film or brake down your script. Together, we can brainstorm for ideas, structure, and outline. We can work to overcome problems of getting your vision out of your head and onto to the medium of your choice. I can improve your story, style, and help it shine. As a film maker and screenwriter myself I can help you pre-write, write, and rewrite. I’ll be happy to hold your hand till the very end. I’ll work with you as a friend or teacher. When I’m working for you, we work as a team. My experience and my expertise will be at your disposal until the project is completed to your satisfaction. I hold a MFA in Film production/post production and a BA in Communication Study: This means I know a lot more about what goes into a good story or add copy then people who just like watching them. My only goal is that you end up with a clean project and that you are happy with the results I can give you. My fresh eyes are worth it . . . I’ll see the details others miss, simply because you wrote it, shot it, or have been committed to it. You know what it says or is supposed to say, even if that’s not what it really says. Maybe your mother and everyone else you know has seen it and praised it. After all they want to support you and that's what friends are for. However if you hire me . . . you’re paying me to be honest and frank. You’re paying me to find and correct mistakes. You also need to know what film and written editing are not. 1. I am not a ghost writer, or a happy go lucky intern. I do not work without credit or pay. 3. I do not give free professional advice. (unless I know you and we have worked together on past projects) 4.I am not an agent. 5.I cannot negotiate contracts or practice law for you in any way. Please don’t ask. What you need to know If you are working on a media project of any kind many will try to take advantage of your lack of experience. Many will take a look at your work, then they tell you all the things that are wrong with it. Worse still, they will suggest that you give it to them and let them work on it for a few dollars. The problem in this case is it becomes their project and stops being your project. I’ve seen professionals make this mistake over and over when dealing with the actual creative person themselves. I have been on both sides of that desk and I can tell you the guys in the suit's are smart people. They will do anything possible to not “offend”, including not actually getting to know you, or your project. To them your a product, one of many. To me your a stepping stone. All I can really offer you is that when you come to me, we can build a working relationship based on the fact that like you I to am trying to break into the media industry. If you do well my resume gets longer. The people I get to meet.
